Guy Lawson


Guy typically finds himself helping clients sort through complex business transactions. Due to the intricate nature and tight timelines of these deals, Guy develops unique and creative solutions specific to that client. He puts all of his experience to work, taking into consideration the implications of each plan as it pertains to the overall interests of his clients. Guy doesn’t just close the transaction, but acts as an advisor along the way, while looking out for the long-term welfare of his client beyond the current situation. That’s how he develops a long and trusted relationship with his clients, which allows him to fully understand their business so he can represent them efficiently and effectively.

Success Story:

A public company in the service sector found an opportunity to acquire some much needed capital. However, they came to Guy for advice on the governance impact of the transaction on their business operations. Guy helped them evaluate the need for capital in a tough economic climate against the unknowns of the transaction, including compliance with foreign securities and corporate laws. In order to move forward, Guy helped the client create a security with unique terms designed to comply with regulatory requirements and also satisfy the needs of both the client and the investor. The transaction went smoothly, and the client’s business was able to expand into a new segment.
